11 months...he's almost ONE!

It really is crazy to think about how fast our little man is growing! I should have written this post last week, but Mom was here and I just didn't take much time to sit down at the computer! Speaking of last week, it was simply the best spring break--I certainly didn't want it to end! It was such a blessing to have my mom here the whole week and I only let her go home because she'll be back in 3 weeks for Rogan's bday party :)

So here's some pics and a few random things about our little monkey man...



Rogan is crawling EVERYWHERE. If you leave a room, he'll follow you out. He still does the army crawl, even though he "dances" on his hands and knees. But he sure is quick!

A few days ago he woke up from his nap crying after only half an hour so I knew he needed to go back to sleep. I went to get a bottle warming and when I looked back at the monitor he was STANDING up in his bed...little toot! He's been pulling up to his knees for about a week now, but to his feet is a whole other level. Look out!

He LOVES Cheerios...if all else fails, try Cheerios. He likes to hold one between his fingers and use his teeth(only ones in front of course) to bite it in half.

He's got REALLY good vision. He will pick up the tiniest speck of dirt off the floor. I've dug things out of his mouth so much that he's learned to just pick it up and hold it up to give me.

He hates getting food on his face when he eats. Seriously, he gets upset.

He waves bye-bye and sometimes will say it at the same time, although usually the two aren't together. Sometimes he'll wave HI.

He loves baby einstein's Baby MacDonald...it's the farm one and he will literally sit in his bumbo and watch the entire thing...talking, waving, and dancing through it.

Now that he's not sick any more, he's back to being a good sleeper...usually two naps a day, but if they total much less than 3 hours, a third nap is sometimes necessary.

He's been totally on whole milk for a couple weeks now and does great...I think at first it took some getting used to because he pooped like 5 times a day, but that's gotten better.

The time change worked well for him...well, better for me! He now sleeps "later"!!

He LOVES to be outside(which is nothing new!) He gets REALLY excited if you just walk with him towards the door!

If you ask him what a dog says, he says "uffff" "uffffff" --hasn't quite got the "r" yet.

He loves to play with anything that makes noise...the more he can make, the longer he'll play with it!(pots and pans on the kitchen tile make LOUD noises!)

He has 6 teeth! 4 on top and 2 on bottom

He can make a fish face(sucking in your cheeks) and it is HILARIOUS!

He can clap his hands really well...and likes the louder noise it makes in the tub when his hands are wet!

He was totally meant to be my son--such a ham for the camera! Here's some pics to prove it!

Outdoor bathing

So this evening Rogan took his bath outside since it was so nice...just thought it would be fun...and he did have fun. Unfortunately I didn't grab my camera til the end, but he's still just as cute. I was just too busy laughing at him before he got out. He even slipped completely under water and didn't freak out--so I'm pretty sure he's going to be a little fish!

Here's a few of our little monkey man and his all-too-handsome Daddy :)




This week at the Ivey's

So, once again, the little monkey man has been sick...this time some virus...totally congested with a nasty cough. He had a low fever off and on about a day and a half, but other than that, he's been doing good. We're hoping it all clears up this weekend so he'll be nice and healthy when Omi(my mom) gets here on Monday!! CAN'T WAIT!!
Rogan had pizza for the first time last night at his friends Max and Marlis's house...and he LOVED it...seriously. He was eating like a little machine and his life depended on it! I think it's his new favorite :)

Rogan is such a content baby and it's such a blessing. Today he crawled all over the house playing and talking for like an hour...he's so entertaining--especially when he doesn't know you are watching!

As far as baby #2 goes...he is doing well! And for the most part I've started getting some energy back, although the last 2 days I have been extremely tired...hope I'm not getting sick! Baby is now the size of a softball! However, my belly looks like he's the size of a volleyball :( Oh well!

The busy season is coming upon us at the greenhouse, as Allen starts to leave earlier for work and more and more plants and flowers are filling up the greenhouse...it's amazing to go in there just once or twice a week and see how much has changed--they sure do work hard!

Rogan will be 11 months old on Monday, so I'll have a post with pictures then!! tata for now!
